- Picture: Unofficial leak/HTCFamily
The first clear shot of what is said to be the HTC One 2 or HTC M8 leaked onto Twitter earlier today.
Russian site HTCFamily posted up the back of a smartphone that closely resembles the HTC One that comes with two cameras and dual-led flash. This leak matches some of the earlier reports which stated that the M8 or One 2 would come with 2 cameras and two flash LEDs. The rumored fingerprint sensor does not appear on the back in the picture.
The site also published an outline of the front of the device that confirms it will come with onscreen buttons.
Other HTC One 2 rumors also pointed to the device featuring dual-rear lenses for its camera.
A recently leaked photo of a case said to be for the back of the device shows two large cut outs that could be used for a lens and something else. One of the holes might be for a fingerprint sensor, however, the company's lack of success with the component on the HTC One Max would make going with something like a dual-lens a better idea.
Another report from Bloomberg backed this notion by citing a person with direct knowledge of the HTC One successor. The publication claims that the new model will debut in March and will come with a twin-rear sensor camera. This will give the camera better focus and depth of field and image quality.
Older rumors point to the device launching in four different colors.
A pair of tweets from XDA TV producer Shen Ye revealed that the new device will be available in dark grey, light grey, red and blue when it is released later this year. The current HTC One model comes in all of these colors. However, the hues for the blue and red on the M8 are said to be significantly different from the ones found on its predecessor.
